Munificent Samurai: "Suicide Note"
Had a good night. Jammed with the Swingers. I used the new guitar, Munificent Samurai. I was pleased with how good she looked. Timeray was too. She liked how I wrote on her.
"That's so cute," she said. "You wrote, 'I am Pirooz. This is my guitar.' "
"Yeah, I like that."
"Why is it covered up? I want to see it."
"Oh the varnish dripped. I had to cover it again. I'll put it back there."
I put it back this morning. I am glad I did. There is nothing like making a guitar come into this world Red Violin styley. I am happy about her sound too. She sounds purdy. Especially with the new chords Brett taught me.
"Just slide it down two frets. It's like a C."
"Oooh, I like that."
"Yeah, it's a pretty chord."
"What's the other one?"
"Just move down-"
"You mean up?"
I used both chords for the latest song, "Suicide Note." I don't really know what it's about. It's still percolating. Hopefully, it will come together with all your favorite members of Slipshod.
The version below is just a demo with yours truly. Maybe, it will make the album. No idea.
